After retiring from competitive athletics in 2017, former sprinter Usain Bolt is turning his hand — or foot — to professional football and is in negotiations to participate in a six-week trial with Australian A-League club Central Coast Mariners.
“The Central Coast Mariners remain committed to discussions with the ‘world’s fastest man’ and his management team, regarding what role the Club may play in Bolt’s burning ambition to become a professional footballer,” the club said in a statement.

It added that the Jamaican superstar is far from pulling on the club’s colors in a competitive match — that’s dependent on his performance over the six-week trial. “No contract is guaranteed,” the statement added.
